at all. i think this was an exercise in showing that the government and the bank of japan, the central bank are on the same page. they certainly delivered that. i think the fact that it's an open-ended asset purchase program, it was more than what the markets had been factoring in. i think the dollar/yen moves are sort of moving independently right now. and i think a lot of that has to do with the comments that we had from government saying, oh, we're not trying to manipulate the currency, which throws into question this competitive devaluation story they were banking on. instead of being explicit about that over the last couple of weeks, now they're going to have to be a little bit more implicit about that. but the man of the hour, mr. shiraka shirakawa, the bank of japan, here is what he had to say. >> translator: japan believes growth is important. we teamed up with the dwoft to strengthen our policies and work on this goal together as one. >> let's take a look at the technicals about this 2% inflation target. because at the same time today, the bank of japan is saying the price of

limit is a sign of leadership failure, it's a sign that the u.s. government can't pay its own bills, it's a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government's reckless fiscal policies. leadership means that the buck stops here. instead, washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today on the backs of our children and grandchildren, therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase america's debt limit. in 2008, candidate obama blamed president bush and called the growing debt unpatriotic. >> number 43 added 4 trillion dollars by his lonesome so that we now have over 9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back, $30,000 for every man, woman and child, that's irresponsible. it's unpatriotic. >> mike: unpatriotic. 9 trillion dollars in debt 2008. we're 16 1/2 trillion dollars in debt today. all right. joining me now, former house speaker newt gingrich. mr. speaker, great having you with me tonight.

[cheers and applause] because of you that it's even possible to give afghans a chance to determine their own destiny. we are going forward and will keep our military the findest fighting force that the world's ever known. now, tonight, we're also joined by some of our service members in afghanistan. they can't see us, but we can see them on this monitor. who we got there? general, are you the
is all about. people who maintain an almost total skepticism about what government can accomplish for the good of this country. he talked about all the good things government does, whether it's education or it's a safety net or it's regulation when it has to be done in terms of big business. he launched all those good reasons and then he said, of course, there are people who retain a reasonable skepticism about the role of government in this country. that debate is going to continue. i thought that was an amazing effort. he's not going to win any support from the tea party. he might win though, the congressman may know better, he might be able to make some of the people who represent the suburbs who are not so far right realize this guy is not their enemy. he is somewhat to their left but he's probably as reasonable as anybody to their right in terms of politics these days. >> chris -- >> i think the battle today is between people that want government to function, want the debate to continue, and people that want to take their ball and go home and end government, shut it down, use
: will america buy that we the people is now we the government. we will report. you will decide. >>brian: one guy i know does buy it. it looks like he'll have his media in the corner with the president of the united states. this network executive heard an article telling the president to pulverize and destroy republicans. you can go for their throats. we see him sunday with bob schieffer. we can't make this up. we'll review it only for you on "fox & friends." >>steve: it is the coldest day of the winter so far here in new york city. that is why it was a good decision to go indoors today. >>gretchen: you know even though i grew up in minnesota, i hate the cold weather. so let's pretend it is 90 degrees and go for it. >>brian: yesterday 600,000 people happy yesterday was a little warmer. it was at a minimum 800,000 shy from four years prior. the balls that followed, the parade that ensued. it's always a great day in america. >>gretchen: for me, beyonce. i see that you and i slept together again last night. >>brian: do you mean purple? >>gretchen: sure. let's do headlines. three americans were unfor
, it all boils down to there's a very different vision when you're talking about a government that takes about 23%, 24% of gdp and one at 20%, 21% like budget chairman ryan proposed. as we began this debate, they can't even agree on where we start because democrats believe we've already cut $1.7 trillion to $3 trillion all from domestic and defense, nondefense discretionary spending which, of course, that's not true. >> wait a minute. >> $3 trillion in discretionary -- >> no, $1.5 trillion is how the cbo. >> republicans will give you $900 billion and cbo -- you canted even agree where you're starting. >> that is a problem. >> true. but if -- what does it tell you that the ryan budget had essentially no medicare savings in the first ten years? in other words, you have a contest to cut entitlements, and the republicans say to the president, put some cuts on the table. democrats say the reverse, but we haven't seen them from anybody. >> she needs no introduction. that, of course, the first lady of the united states, michelle obama. she has changed her hairstyle. there will be a twitter poll
a volley and government. the democrats typically say, well, government can do this or can't do that ask so it's really a series of arguments over the role of government and the second thing i'm curious to know about is how tough they were in a pretty partisan atmosphere. he has gotten tougher over the past couple of years with the opposition. how feist you he is he during the speech. >> things people have picked up in this run up to this inauguration is that the president four years ago in his speech came tout and he actually made a comment about how he was going to to bring an end to the petty grievances and false promises in washington. now four years later was that a false promise? >> yes. i mean, the president, i think, understandably confident and an historic election and all of that perhaps overstated what could be done. this is one place where he seen having come fiercely short and it's in bringing that sense to washington of bipartisanship and of working together and overcoming partisanship and his defenders and supporters will say oh, the republicans have been intransient and smal

. they gave to us a republic, a government of and by and for the people, entrusting each generation to keep safe our founding creed. for more of the 200 years we have had. we have learned that no union founded on the principles of liberty and equality could survive half buried. we made ourselves a new and we vowed to move forward together. together we determined that a modern economy requires railroads and highways to see travel and commerce. schools and colleges to train our workers. together we discovered that a free market only works with your competition and fair play. together we resolve that a great nation must care for it the vulnerable and protect its people from life's worst hazards and misfortunes. to it all, we have never relinquished our skepticism of central authority. nor have we succumb to the fictions that ills can be cured through government alone. our celebration of a nation, and enterprise, our insistence on hard work and personal responsibility. these are constant in our character. we have always understood that when times change, so we do too. fidelity to our founding p

question is who does he choose in a coalition to govern with? the smart money is on him lining up with even more hard-line parties to his right which, of course, is the nightmare scenario for palestinians. or he could surprise everyone and team up with a more centrist bloc, and that would probably give him more wiggle room, at least that's what the analysts are saying, to deal with the stalled peace talks and what israelis are calling a tanking economy. and the horse trading begins as early as tomorrow morning. mara? >> and let's turn, if we can, to elsewhere in the region to syria where russia is sending planes to lebanon to evacuate citizens from the region. now, what kind of sign does that send to assad's government in syria? >> reporter: well, that's a very good question. first of all, the russian government's making this look like an evacuation, a short-term evacuation, only for those who want to leave the region. but russian officials are underscoring that, you know, there are tens of thousands of russians living and working in syria. it's their former client state. russia has a warm-

years? >> i hope he's learned that you know, no one part of the government, really, gets it all done. and so, he's got to do a better job of reaching out to members of congress, across both -- across the aisle, to the republicans. and the republicans have to stop buying into things that demonize the president. why aren't republican leaders shouting out about all this birther nonsense and these other things? they're silent. they need to speak out. this is the kind of intolerance i've been talking about, where these idiot presentations continue to be made. and you don't see the senior leadership of the party say, no, that's wrong. sometimes, by not speaking out, they're encouraging it. and the base keeps buying this stuff. and it's killing the base and party. 26% favorability rate for the party right now. that ought to be telling them something. you know? instead of attacking, whoever speaks, look in the mirror and say, how are we going to win the next election? >> and looking overseas, we know governments over the world will be pouring over this speech for every nuance, at this time,

government spending, they want this town to operate better than it does. >> one note here for parents whose children are home today, a holiday from school, we're going to be on the air for many hours and if i might, have them stop by and sit in front of the tv and watch this. because especially coming off this political season, and with all the troubles we've witnessed as a nation, this is the -- kind of the best of america in action. this is something we do well and this is a living history lesson today. yes, all of us who are here to cover it love this sort of thing and wouldn't miss it for the world, but this is how an interest in history and politics can get kindled at a young age. and it's one of the great spectacles available for free from home. savannah guthrie, i heard someone say this past week that this time around, four years later, the highs are not so high and the lows are not so low, meaning yes, the crowd won't number 2 million. the history of this administration has already been made. but also the economy isn't in a fr fr freefall. it doesn't feel as dire as it did. >> as yo
side, c-4s and c-3s, the poor which need help from the government. but i notice the president -- he had a line in his speech where he said every job -- the nation needs to find a decent wage for every worker. really? you know, there is supply and demand. there is a new role for government, and it's a more active role. >> is that a role for government, or could that be read, that is the american dream, the promise of america, which is people who come from nothing in a generation can become something, which as you well know, very unusual in many other countries. america is the place where that story is possible, and elsewhere it's really not. >> that's right. and -- and i guess you could interpret it either way and that's the debate. that's the debate. will it be the role of government or supply and demand and the natural market. >> the raising of a president, the mother and fathers of our nation's leaders. thank you for joining us. >> let's get to john berman. >>> the testimony many americans have been waiting months to hear. secretary of state hillary clinton will testify about the atta
, the president called on both parties not to let politics get in the way of governing. >> we must act knowing that our work will be imperfect. we must act knowing that today's victories will be only partial. >> reporter: so republicans are offering a compromise on the debt ceiling. house gop members are backing off a requirement to cut $1 of spending for every dollar the debt ceiling has raised. it's a move the president has demanded. >> i do believe it is a recognition of political reality. i think we realize the president won the election. >> reporter: but republicans on capitol hill are not voting to raise the debt ceiling without getting something in return. they say in order to approve a highe debt limit, they want senate democrats to do something they haven't done in four years -- pass a budget. >> for us to have a debate about spending and debt, we've got to have the focus be on a budget and what we're going to do to achieve a balanced budget over time. >> reporter: senate democrats view the vote as an opportunity to raise more money for taxes. >> it's going to be
to put every private, personal firearms transaction under the thumb of the federal government. and he wants to keep all of those names in a massive federal registry. there's only two reasons for a federal list on gun owners. to either tax them or take them. that's the only reason. and anyone who says that's excessive, president obama says you're an absolutist. >> it's back to business in washington today. republicans in the house are expected to vote on a plan that would diffuse the debt ceiling crisis. the federal government could keep borrowing money for three months, in exchange house develop members want the senate to pass a budget, something that body has not done since 2009, exactly 1,365 days ago. this time instead of demanding spending cuts, republicans added a provision to the bill that would suspend lawmakers own paychecks if a budget is failed to be passed by april 15th. >> most americans believe if you don't do your job you don't get paid. that's the basis for no budget no pay. it's time for the senate to act. i think the american people understand that you can't continue
. not even just those in government can tackle these big challenges. all americans have to be involved if we're going to move beyond what's paralyzed this town for so long and make some progress. >> he'll try to recapture the spirit of bipartisanship? >> he will and, look. i think it's a real challenge to everybody in this country, to lay aside their partisanship and try to make some real progress for the country. and, look charlie, it's not as if we're going to solve the really big issues or the really big div we can if we sit down long enough work together and talk together and make some progress on the issues we face. >> i heard from some of my sources the president finished his speech relatively early on saturday. exclusively they're writing at the very last minute of these inaugural addresses. what's different this year? >> i think he feels very comfortable with what he's got, very at ease with what he wants to say, and understands the moment he and the country are in, and is anxious to get started. >> let's talk about the second term because one of the
're not talking at all act a core change in how this party actually plans to govern. they're just talking about a cosmetic difference. >> he's also not teaching in some of those schools, siensz: >> oh, yeah, as the science course is creationism. >> yes, that's exactly right. >>> e.j., when you look at reince ps reince priebus, opportunityism working on voters but the same policies, i mean, do they get it? >> i think the newer slogan is don't worry, be happy. that happiness would be nice compared to what we have. he did say the party needed to be more welcoming and inclusive. the problem is that that takes them away from having to think about what actually failed them. >> mitt romney got in trouble because a lot of people had already come to believe that the republican party was primarily a party of very wealthy people and was only interested in cutting their taxes. they lost the latino vote because mitt romney talked about self deportation and the party of blocked immigration reform. and the african american vote was going to go to president obama. but they jammed it way up with their voter sup
his predecessors, the president says he is most inspired by president lincoln. >> that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth. >> reporter: in november, mr. obama screened steven spielberg's movie "lincoln" at the white house theater. sources tell me, ever since, he's been quoting it around the west wing. >> lincoln is the patheosis of a uniter. >> reporter: and look for an acknowledgement of dr. martin luther king's vision on the day we honor the civil rights leader, a coincidence of timing that's not lost on the nation's first african american president. now, the speech was finalized over the weekend, but the president often makes final word changes up to the very end, and this time was no exception. i'm told that he made tweaks this morning, in fact. the president, i'm told, will speak for under 20 minutes. by reading prior inaugural addresses, he decided the shorter, the better. his last address was just over 18 minutes. his favorite two past inaugurals were kennedy's, which ran just under 14 minutes, and, of course, lincoln's s
to the needs of our time. we must harvest new ideas and technology that we make our government, revamp our tax cuts come reform our schools, and empower our citizens with the skills they need to work harder and learn more and retire. but -- and reach higher. while the means change, the purpose and doors. a nation that rewards the effort and determination of each and every american, that is what this we believe every citizen deserves a measure of dignity. we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care. we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and invested in the generation that will build its future. we remember the lessons of our past. twilight years were spent in poverty. a tablet disability had nowhere to turn. we do not believe that freedom is reserved for the lucky or happiness for the few. we recognize that men matter how responsibly we live our lives any one of us at any of our times may face a job loss or a home slipped away in a terrible storm. the commitments we make to each other do not zap our nation, th
